I pretty much only play the HO games so I find it so disappointing when they're boring! As has been said multiple times, I don't want to deal with the story lines - if I want a story, I'll read a book! Not being able to skip the dialogue was the main reason that I am not buying this game. Also, did anyone else have it go balistic on you when you tried to enter the cave to get the scissors? I had to alt/control/delete to get out because it kept zooming (and "unzooming") on the cave entrance!

lisa, I saw comments from a couple of others who experienced a problem like this. I've played without any issues ... so am one of the lucky ones. Good Luck

I don't have no questions on this game at all and I love the cutscenes. That to me is one of the reasons it made this game stand out from the rest of the HO's. Askold I am sure you saw my previous comments but I will say it again, your game totally rocks and if big fish didn't have it I would have bought it out right anyways. You people did a superior job. I love the mini games as well. You definitely need coffee before you do a portal puzzle. Keep up the great work. God bless

Awsome! While I enjoy a good story line, when I go back I usually don't want to read it again. Thanks for doing an update.

hi, I liked the game but it wouldn't go to next level. It kept coming back to the differences and items.

I bought this one and am not disappointed. It has great graphics and an intriguing story. You can also get plenty of Hints when you get stuck. There seems to be no time limit or Hint limit.

My only major criticism is that you cannot bypass all the blather. That really limits replay. I may not replay this game as I cannot stand waiting for all the story pages to finish so I can get back to the game. This, of course, makes the game last a long time but does get tiresome. Repeated story pages are also tiresome - how many times will I see that same long "dream" page?

Watch for the center guide to turn green- then snap.

Last thing I'd want to do when I'm tackling an unknown jungle is to lounge around in tight cutoffs and a crop top. She looks like a reject for a Bannana Republic ad.

Just seems obvious that this one was designed by guys, but I think the majority of people playing will be women, right?

I think they were going for the Lara Croft effect, which was hugely popular when it came out.

Ok, I haven't read all of the posts yet, but I gotta say this is actually a fun game. Last night I did the trial on our PC, but wasn't sure about it. Like many of you I hated that I couldn't click thru the comments. I liked most of the mini games. I tried the trial again on my laptop and I noticed this time that if I clicked on the screen with the story I was given the option to continue fairly quickly. I liked this much better than last night.

The only thing I don't know is how many levels there are. I made it to the portal after Africa, is there much more to go? I hate to buy a game and then have it over quickly.

We did this feature today, as I promised. I am glad if you like new version of the game. Thank you for your choice.

I am not complaining about this game I thought I was not going to like the game after reading so many post about this and about that, about the game so I bought it and love it. I love the great story line and the beautiful graphics also and Veronica is funny and she does have a good heart the way she think of others first and even think of the animals and mammals also. All I can say about this game is that we really need more games like this one did you hear that Big Fishes? more games like this one okay .

Good news about the Ancient Castle of Ireland!

We have fixed rare problem with the secret place (hidden room), where you need to pick up the arrow and scissors. On seldom PC configurations player was not able to take these objects. It was the case just for a few players.

99.99% of players don't have this problem and enjoy the game.

Within several days we'll update version of the game on .

Thanks again for you choice and patience!
